I expect that a lot of you will have seen this over the past year or two but it was new to me, so I thought I might pass it on.

I think its very well done. Only pity is there's no sound so anyone who doesn't know the battle is at a bit of a disadvantage.

TY Trajanus.

Enjoyed watching this, and appreciate the novel artfulness that was maintained with the visuals.

Good show!

If only the two sides were differentiated by some colour it would be easier to tell them apart, but a novel idea.
I remember a television series years ago in which chess games were presented by stop-frame animation so the pieces seemed to move of their own accord with a voice over narration and comments from the players.
Often wondered why no one – as far as I know – has done this with figure wargames.

Interesting approach.

If you want to know a bit more about the map, and its various reincarnations, where to source a print of the map (and how to annoy the staff at Royal Armouries in Leeds) see link

Here's the Royal Collection's zoomable web view of the Map where you can amuse yourself checking the deployments.

As a wargamer, the most useful thing about Streeter's map, is the design of the houses and the size of the hedges:nothing twee-suburban about the latter.
